I’ve had some luck with picking up real wood furniture. And I’ve had a couple of zonks- in one case I bought an item which was advertised as teak, but of course was veneered. I’ve also gotten oak and ash tables and some walnut solid hardwood that would have otherwise gone into a landfill if I hadn’t happened upon it. You just have to keep your eyes peeled, and have the time to go where the wood MIGHT be. Not all that easy. My finds were made when I was unemployed, in the early ‘90s. May that never happen again.
